Ephesians 5:14-21 Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light! So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times! Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants. Don’t drink too much wine. That cheapens your life. Drink the Spirit of God, huge draughts of him. Sing hymns instead of drinking songs! Sing songs from your heart to Christ. Sing praises over everything, any excuse for a song to God the Father in the name of our Master, Jesus Christ. Out of respect for Christ, be courteously reverent to one another.
Are you making the most of the chances God is giving you? Are you stepping up and stepping out and living the life He is calling you to live? If not, why not?
Joshua 1:9 Haven’t I commanded you? “Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.”
